X5 key won't start the car

My X5 (2004 3.0 Diesel) has been off the road for about a year and I have replaced the battery but the it won't start. The key will lock/unlock the doors but nothing when I try to start it. I have only one key and during the time it was off the road my son dropped the key and it fell apart, I have put it back together and like I said it locks/unlocks but nothing when I turn the ignition, no click from the starter motor, nada.

I have researched the forums and I wanted to ask about the 10 second thing re the immobiliser, if I lock the car and then unlock it and try to start it within 10 seconds should this work, so I can at least move the car. secondly do I need to order a new key or is there any other solution.

Many thanks in adavance.
